In case you want to have some fun on a Sunday night, but you don’t have your ID with you, check out our tips for using someone else’s ID to get into a bar.

First of all, let’s make one thing clear. People don’t just use fake or someone’s ID’s so they could get in a bar and waste themselves from drinking. Some want to socialize, meet new friends or a girlfriend/boyfriend, have a good fun and dance or just experience something they didn’t have the opportunity to do before. This article is for people who have a legitimate reason to use someone else’s ID to get into a bar. Please talk to a lawyer about using someone else’s ID and fake ID laws in your state or country before taking any action.

Let’s get to the pros and cons of using someone else’ ID. There are some benefits compared to using a fake ID. Most fake ID’s are not genuinely made, starting from material to printing. Believe us; the bouncers are doing their job for a long time, so most of them know how to recognize the fake ID by taking a look at it or holding it. This is why genuine ID may be a better choice, even if it’s not yours. The negative thing is of course if they pay more attention to the picture, you’ll get busted and maybe get the true holder of the ID in trouble.

6 Tips For Using Someone Else's ID To Get Into A Bar


You have to know that things don’t always go smoothly when you try to pull out a stunt like this. The bar owners take this thing really seriously since they could lose their license if they have underage people drinking in their bar. If you want to know what you shouldn’t suppose to do or how you shouldn’t suppose to act, just watch the movie Superbad. If nothing, it will remind you of times when Jonah Hill was a chubby little boy. Now, if a bouncer notices there is something wrong with the ID you have shown him, it will be confiscated. So you can say goodbye to it, and the person who borrowed it to you will likely have to go to the nearest police office or to the bar in order to get the ID back. If the cops get involved, there is no easy way out of this. While in some states, using someone else’s ID or a fake one will get you charged with a misdemeanor, in states like Florida and Illinois, you can get charged with a felony. Take all of this into consideration and decide if it’s worth the risk (don’t do anything illegal).
